Transform Your Life through WELLthier Living, a Zoom class series presented by local experts in various areas of health and well-being, will be held on eight consecutive Tuesdays, from January 19 through March 9.; All presentation will take place from noon to 1 p.m.

Topics will include factors affecting our individual health and well-being; preventive measures for physical and mental/emotional health; global healing practices; integrative health; functional medicine; and new scientific approaches addressing the root cause of chronic illness. 

The series is hosted by Daralyn Chase, publisher of Natural Awakenings magazine of Northwest Florida, and sponsored by, a new national platform where visitors can find peer-reviewed information on a vast array of subjects related to regenerative whole-body health; be matched with practitioners and providers in these areas; and connect with like-minded people.

Natural Awakenings is offering the series through two continuing education centers—the Center for Lifelong Learning at UWF in Fort Walton Beach, and the Leisure Learning Center at UWF in Pensacola,” Chase says. “Attendees can register through those centers, and they can also register and pay for individual Zoom presentations through this website.

Each class in the Zoom series will include a brief introduction to KnowWEwell, a main presentation of 40 to 45 minutes, and a Q&A with the presenter. Presentations are recorded so attendees can make up any classes they miss.
